Just-in-times is a production process that has revolutionized the automobile, as well as many other industries over the past forty years. The major issue in this thesis is "What is the potential impact of implementing Just-in-Time practices into the contracting process in the Department of Defense?" The thesis focuses on the production process of the T-56 engine that is reworked at the Naval Aviation Depot Facility at Alameda, CA. The objective is to determine the feasibility of implementing Just-in-Time contracting practices in the procurement of selected parts for the T56 engine. The intent is to determine if utilizing this process will reduce the inventory costs and improve the quality of parts received from Department of Defense contractors. The Just-in-Time process provides a more efficient method of doing business by eliminating waste in the production process. The Department of Defense can experience significant benefits from implementing Just-in-Times practices and should pursue the implementation of this process.
